    Just a note: Had a clarification on this from Wrexham Council, who said the consultation is in relation to the centre on Hall Street in Penycae.

    And finally –

    Things are worse than the good old days. Compared to when you started out, is there more crime, more being acted upon, more awareness of whats going on with mobile phones and social media, or are things bad?

    Question –

    There is much talk of cybercrime and knocking out criminals gangs using special policing methods over the internet. Surely this is the stuff for specialists in HQ not general Officers who should be out and about. The whole community, not just older people appreciate seeing Police on the ground and surely a visible enforcement presence is a potent deterrent for those with a criminal history and those who are teetering on the brink of committing a crime of some kind.

    Crime, including drugs crime is run not just by supply, but via the laws of supply and demand. I realise that demand is not necessarily knocked out by arrests and cautions, however this does make people consider their actions more seriously and jail time does give people further opportunities to consider the serious consequences of their offences to their lives and the lives of others and make a U-turn.

    Does NWP really think that a softer approach to drugs crime is really going to help communities marred by it and for that matter those struggling with addiction. After all, addiction to a drug comes from an initial wrong choice to take a substance that is addictive. If the consequences of making a wrong choice are minimal then the probability of having a go is increased.

    Another question / statement:

    Please note that in asking the questions I appreciate what hard work the whole Police Force undertake and the pressures on resources, together with the targets they are given which do not necessary reflect the real needs of the communities they serve.

    In view of the current limited resources of the Police Force and the potential cuts by WCBC if the PCSOs are reduced through the forthcoming budget decisions, does the panel think people will take to making Citizens Arrests using their powers under Section 24A of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 (PACE).

    Please can you advise what your view is on this and how does NWP respond to calls from members of the public who have made Citizens Arrests and how would they respond to increased numbers of such calls?

    Two more questions on NPS (previously known as legal highs) – final ones on this topic:

    1. With the spice issue has anyone thought to ask or find out where they are getting it from and raid the suppliers?

    2. Are there spice problems in Rhos or Llangollen or just Wrexham Town Centre?

    Question for Inspector Wycherley:

    The town centre, everyday has groups of people, visibly under the effect of drugs and alcohol in the entrances to empty shops, bus station , green space Rhosddu and outside Richmond House Grosvenor Road.

    They are very intimidating and are affecting trade in the town. What are you powers to deal with them , how would you like to see your powers strengthened?

    Another question about the new police station:

    “As the police prepare to move into new buildings in Llay (north wrexham )how will that impact on response times to crime in Wrexham town and especially in the south of the county.”

    Bit of an explanation wanted for what and how wards are defined as rural (as a note in previous webchats they have focused on the town, but we did have a lot of questions about areas classed as ‘rural’)

    Question – How come Johnstown is rural, we are not rural?

    Two more separate questions about the Public Space Protection Orders –

    1) Is the town PSPO worth the paper is it written on ?

    2) Are the Public Space Protection Orders toothless? A fine is the only penalty, for people with little or no money.
